GUEST,Hootenanny UK Folk Revival 2018 (605* d) RE: UK Folk Revival 2018 26 Aug 18


Not offended Jim, just reminding you of your usual complaint when somebody mentions your hero.

As I mentioned above I was referring to the printed copy called The Skiffle Album. published by B Feldman & Co. Ltd. I have a copy here and if you wish to see a copy there is one on page 252 of Billy Bragg's recent book "Roots Radicals and Rockers". The photograph of the group shows Bruce Turner to be the clarinet player which I believe is correct but Lomax's notes confuse things by calling him Sandy Brown.

Re Long John Baldry, I knew him very well. Did he really make that accusation in print? Malcolm never left The Ballads Blues. It was Ewan and Peggy that left in 1961. Malcolm continued until 1965

The thought that anyone would run off with the takings from a folk club is laughable. Even you can't really seriously believe that.

On the closing night of the Ballads and Blues Club 1965 the main guest was Long John Baldry. John was represented by the Malcolm Nixon Agency. When we closed the agency John continued with the same man who had been his manager at the Agency one George Webb. George put John together with Rod Stewart and Julie Driscoll and the Brian Auger Trinity to form The Steam Packet. All three vocalists went on to have big hits in the pop market. Pretty irrelevant here but just to make the point that Long John Stayed with Malcolm Nixon until the agency no longer existed.
